The Month’s Giveaway Prize: Snowbound, an Anthology
In the middle of the dog days of summer, let’s think some cool thoughts. This month’s giveaway is Snowbound, Best New England Crime Stories, published by Level Best Books on 2017 with stories by many of your favorite authors including Miss D’s, Emilya Naymark and Keenan Powell. Here’s a taste:
Eddie Barrie liked a good scotch. He also liked languid evening in cigar bars, a tumbler of Macallen glowing amber in his hand, a perfectly aged Cohiba at his lips. He owned three Prada suits, a Porshe, Louis Vuitton shoes (two pairs of loafers and one of sneakers), and a Piaget watch in the warmest, sweetest rose gold.
Actually, to say he owned those things would be to mangle the truth. Eddie no more owned them than he owned his name, which was not Eddie Barrie at all, but Cosmos Dimitrios Papadopoulos.
- A Very Luck Bone by Emilya Naymark
A crow swooped, talons open, screaming, screaming. Liam flailed his arms overhead, shielding his head and face. The crow vanished, then swooped again, screeching his name, “Liam, Liam.”
“Liam,” his mother whispered, shaking him awake. “Can you not hear that?”
Her hand on his shoulder was cold. Crinkly white hair spray away from her mouse-colored braid. She looked mad, as certainly she was.
“It’s the banshee,” Mary Barrett said, her voice hushed.
